Abstract: This paper describes an action research approach to supporting an improvement in the educational research skills of engineering academics in the UK. Two engineering education centres based at Loughborough University (the engCETL which is funded to support academics based at the university and the Engineering Subject Centre which has a national remit) have worked collaboratively to develop resources, including guides, workshops and other events and have started to disseminate this work internationally. In response to an identified need to develop understanding and to facilitate collaborative opportunities, a Special Interest Group has been established that will promote high quality educational research and provide the UK voice for international research communities. This is work in progress and there will be further evaluation undertaken of the impact of these developments. The aim is to establish a selfsustaining community of researchers as there is limited funding for engineering education research in the UK.
